Description

This interdisciplinary, exploratory agenda focuses on maturing ‘low carbon’ innovations and policy for agroenergy and, often competing, localised social technologies in food and energy production in south Goias state and northern UK. It does so through two exploratory field visits and two subsequent collaborative pilot research periods. Funded by Newton Fund, RCUK-CONFAP
